Although Perry’s cause of death remains unconfirmed, initial toxicology reports indicated that there was no meth or fentanyl in his system when he was believed to have drowned.
More in-depth testing is underway to determine whether the beloved actor had prescription drugs in his system.
When investigators went to Perry’s home, they found no illegal drugs, but did find prescription medications that were properly labeled and kept in storage bottles.
Perry had been open about his struggles with drugs and alcohol.
In his 2022 memoir, Friends, Lovers and the Big Terrible Thing, Perry wrote that after his colon exploded in 2018, he was prescribed opiates that he deemed insufficient to deal with his pain, prompting him to turn to street dealers to possibly supply him with fentanyl-laced OxyContin.
“The street pills cost about $75 a pill, so I gave the guy $3,000 a pop, many times a week,” he wrote.
Those who knew him claim Perry was clean and sober at the time of his death.
The death certificate also states that Perry “never married.”
In his deeply personal memoir, Perry let the world know how lonely he was and how he longed for children.

Perry’s Friends co-stars gathered together on Friday and were seen comforting each other outside the church where the 54-year-old was buried.
Jennifer Aniston, 54; Lisa Kudrow, 60; Courteney Cox, 59; and David Schwimmer, 57, arrived as a quartet — all dressed in black suits and looking somber as they prepared to say their final goodbyes to their beloved co-star.
After the simple hour-long ceremony, they were joined outside the church by Matt LeBlanc, 56, and were pictured chatting with other well-wishers.
His tearful mother Suzanne Morrison, 84, and stepfather of Dateline journalist Keith, 76, were both at the private event, as was his father John Perry, 82.
Morrison was one of the pallbearers.
An onlooker told DailyMail.com: ‘There was no dry eyes there. There were many tears and laughter. Only close friends and family spoke.”
After the service, Perry was buried in a dark wooden casket in a family-only ceremony.
Located across from Warner Bros Studios, where Friends was filmed for ten seasons, the cemetery is the final resting place of a galaxy of Hollywood stars including Carrie Fisher, Bette Davis, Stan Laurel, Buster Keaton, INXS frontman Michael Hutchence and Anne Heche .
